Wii > 360? I used to think so.....

    So I got my Wii 4 days after it came out, and fell in love with it.....thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Friends came over, family, everyone had a blast. But now, almost a month after it's release, I'm starting to get bored with it. Wii sports is basically a glorifed demo, and I've never been a big zelda fan.

    So I go over my friends house, and he has a 360. He has gears of war, viva pinata, Rainbox Six: Vegas, Oblivion, and Saints Row. EVERY SINGLE GAME was freakin awesome, both in gameplay and graphics. I was completely awestruck especially by Gears of War, and Saints Row, which to me looked to be a better GTA.

    Now I am having inner turmoil.....and thinking about selling my Wii to get a 360. XBOX Live is single handedly the best, most fun online service I have ever seen, and will probably never be beat. The high definition graphics, voice capabilites, build in hard drive......it's a tough choice. And for 2007, I saw trailers for like, 6-7 games that all looked worth buying. Dark sector, Mass effect, BioShock, Halo 3.....the list goes on and on.

    Are there any good games or an online service coming out for the Wii in 2007? I'm starting to get discouraged :(

    traitor. leave this site and never return. the wii will always be the best, theres more than just wii sports and zelda. wake up n smell the coffee, or give it to someone else to enjoy.

    There are a few confirmed online titles for next year...

    Pokemon, SSBB, Mario Strikers, Battalion Wars are the only ones I can remember off the top of my head but I'm sure there are going to be plenty more. SSBB and Battalion Wars would be worth it completely.

    I joined today. I'm not trying to bash the Wii guys, I love the system. I just want to know if there's anything down the pipeline that can compete with what the 360 is offering, which is amazing as well. I'm trying to find a reason not to sell it, help me out!

    Peripheral, thanks for the list of games. SSBB does indeed, look awesome. How will it control with the wii-remote though?

    why not just keep the wii and save up for a 360?

    I'm pretty sure it's going to either use the classic controller or the gamecube controllers. I've read that they want the control scheme to stay the same for this game.

    but atleast what he says is debatable.

    Well yeah, those 360 games you mentioned are great because they're basically second generation games. If you wait, you'll get games like SSBB, Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime: Corruption, Prince of Persia, Mario Kart, and probably a better Red Steel 2. Sorry, but most videogame systems are dull for the first few months they're out because most launch titles are lame. This time next year, or even by this summer, you'll probably regret selling your Wii.

    That's my opinion.

    Thanks for info guys. I have been looking up all these games on IGN's web site and all of them do look awesome.

    Also, everything I read on pretty much all the forums out there say to go both, or "Wii60". I think I'll just save up for a 360 and have both.....becuase I can't choose. Both systems do their own thing so well, but are lacking something the other has. I guess the only solution is to, indeed, go Wii60 :)

    I bought the Wii, got it at launch, and love it.

    I got in on the Microcenter deal on the 360, and applied for their credit card which made it $200 ($100 mail in rebate and $100 cash back for the card that's getting paid off), and love it. I bought it after I bought the Wii, the day after Thanksgiving.

    Currently, Wii has better gameplay with the Wii remote, but the Xbox 360 controllers are AWESOME themselves for conventional controllers.

    Xbox 360 has better graphics, and always will have -- 720p minimum in EVERY game. It also has great online play, downloadable multimedia content, and the works. Xbox Live is amazing. Xbox 360 also has better sound -- Dolby Digital minimum in EVERY game.

    I looked at the Playstation 3. I played the Playstation 3 extensively. I must say that it SUCKS. The controls are decent, if you liked the PS2 controls. The graphics are good, (but not yet). Rennaisance is a good game.
    But...
    1. The interface is like a PSP
    2. BluRay is FORCED on you. I frankly want HD-DVD to win. There is less content protection, and the format is cheaper to implement than BluRay. Noone needs more than 30GB for 1080p video.
    3. The PS3 is full of bugs. The upconversion for HD might as well not exist. The menu often fails to respond to input, causing you to have to enter and exit. I've had this happen to me a LOT.

    You really can't go wrong with Xbox 360 or Wii. Save up for both.

    Get Trauma Center: Second Opinion. That game would SUCK on Xbox 360; it's a great example of what the Wii remote has to offer!

    Currrently:

    Online = Wii < 360
    Games = Wii=<360
    Graphics = Wii<<360
    Unique Gameplay = Wii>>360

    If I cared about the online or graphics a lot more, I'd go for the 360 hands down. But I'm all about gameplay, and the games for the Wii are matching up to the 360. the only reason the 360 wins sometimes is because, as was mentioned before, it got a year head-start. the Wiimote is turned the Wii's bleak existence into a landslide victory for me.

    get both, I have both and if u want some quick fun or wanna be playing a game for long with zelda turn on the wii, you feel like playing an online FPS game turn on Gears of War on 360.

    I think having a 360 and a Wii is the best combo of game consoles u can have.

    I have a PSWii60 :) I would recommend getting a 360 also but i would not choose it over the Wii. Both are different systems, like apples and oranges in a way. But remember, if you want awesome online multiplayer, PC > All
